But Mitch, you say, you’re a happy guy, what’s with all the angst in the tunes? What tunes, I say, you’ve really pre-empted me on the content of the tunes, would you wait at least until the tunes are shared?
When I’m not writing about David Foster Wallace, reviewing comedy or applying for jobs, I like to record songs on my personal computer. I’d classify these songs as the work of an enthusiastic hobbyist, but they’re important to me because they carry traces of my last four years – becoming independent, seeing Paris with a second set of eyes, learning my limitations et al etc. For some reason, all of the songs are about being in a cult. For the record, I do not know what being in a cult is like.
